The summer of 2017, marked the year that the Dawson Family Memorial Garden had its very first social affair in the garden, since its inception in circa 2005. Although small in stature, it holds a nice sized crowd!
That summer, the Oliver Beautification Alliance held monthly open-mic and poetry events in the garden from July through September, 2017. There was poetry, music, singing, and lecture. Each event held, had its own unique flair. The final event, held in September, beautifully collided with the Peace Walk where we collaborated to have the two separate events come together as one, since they were happening simultaneously.
Stay tuned for what’s in store this year at the Dawson Family Memorial Garden.
